Learning Objectives

The course aims to provide a basic knowledge of the main theories, the results of studies, the most recent research and the specific methodological aspects of developmental psychology. The influence of biological and environmental factors in the genesis of thought will be highlighted, from the perspective that knowledge is not only intellectual, but also, at the same time, perceptive, linguistic and affective and is constituted in intersubjectivity and in the formation of personal identity. At the end of the course the student will have to: - know the main theories of development in the various cognitive, emotional and affective-relational psychological fields throughout life; - have the theoretical and methodological skills to build relationships and communicate effectively with the individual and with the group; - know the tools and techniques for observing individual behavior in different contexts with particular reference to the cognitive, affective and relational dimensions. Particular attention will be paid to the comparison between typical and atypical development in different developmental fields and their implications in terms of theoretical knowledge and intervention models.

Program

The concepts of developmental age, development and developmental stage are preliminarily illustrated. We then proceed with the discussion of typical and atypical development in communicative-linguistic, cognitive, emotional, moral and affective skills, focusing on the changes that occur throughout the lifespan, on the factors that determine these changes and on the processes associated with them. below. The classic theories of developmental psychology and the innovations brought by contemporary studies will be taken as reference. In the last part the course will examine assessment, psychological interventions in the field of development, diagnostic classification systems and the observation of educational contexts such as family, school and society.
